I had seen on the news that El Bruno's was entered in the new mexico green chili contest for the best green chili burger. Food was good, red sauce was very hot. I ordered sour cream to tone the heat down.

While driving from Durango to Santa Fe we stopped here for lunch. This was all around a great find. The lunch chili rellenos was very tasty and their home made hot hot chili was to die for. Not too hot for me. Tasty. I got...More
